It’s back to school with Bee School! Bee pollination is involved with about one-third of the U.S. diet. A crop like blueberries is 90% dependent on bee pollination — no bees, no food. To encourage the bee population on the Seacoast, the Seacoast NH Beekeepers Association is again offering Bee School, consisting of 6 sessions this fall:
Seacoast NH Beekeepers Association
Jeremiah Smith Grange, Lee, NH
Wednesdays, October 5 – November 9, 2011
Beekeeping School offered by Seacoast NH Beekeepers Association: Wednesdays October 5, 12, 19, 26, November 2 & 9 from 7pm – 9pm, at the Jeremiah Smith Grange, Lee, NH.
